Corvette Fleet Strength by Country (2021)



NAVAL POWER | FLEET STRENGTH

Ranking total number of corvette warships by country, from highest to lowest.



The Corvette vessel type was born during the 'Age of Sail'. Modern Corvettes are typically dimensionally smaller than Frigates though larger than Coastal Patrol Craft. Differences between modern Frigates and Corvettes are blurred - some navies consider certain vessels to be Corvettes when they could technically be defined as Frigates. Corvettes supply a balanced mix of firepower, ocean-going capabilities, and rotary-wing support while presenting reasonable economic benefits in terms of construction and procurement costs. Not every major naval power emphasizes the Corvette as part of its surface fleet - though they are consistently found in numerically smaller navies.

For the purposes of the GFP final ranking, landlocked nations are NOT penalized for the lack of a standing naval force. However, nations with a standing navy ARE penalized for lack of certain naval assets, including Corvettes.

Data presented on this list is through 2021. Estimates are made when official data is not available.
